Krooked Tongue - Vampyre

Formed in 2019 by Oli Rainsford, Dan Smith and Harry Pritchard, Krooked Tongue is a Bristol-based alternative-rock three-piece known for their frenetic live shows and brooding lyrical commentary.

Krooked Tongue released their debut single ‘I Wanna Steal Your Car’ in 2019 to critical acclaim, which soon saw them embarking on their first UK tour. Interest in the band quickly grew, leading them to establish working relationships with the likes of ENTS 24 and Laney Amps.

2020 saw the cancellation of their second UK tour and the postponement of shows alongside the likes of Dinosaur Pile-Up and Turbowolf, as well as festival slots at Boardmasters and 2000 Trees. They’ve instead spent the last year honing in on a more refined studio sound with Josh Gallop of Phoxjaw at Stage 2 Studios in Bath, working to help replicate their formidable live act.


Lew's Take:


Vocals are very easy to understand and the lyrics are put together to create great imaging,

I admit I'm a fan of the fuzz tone on the guitar. As for the drum part - nothing fancy here just a good and solid back beat. I found it interesting on their website they list all three members not as to the insturment they play, but just "music".


Excellent! Definitely can feel the engery this trio gives off! I love the suits! The background certainly is with the theme "Vampyre". Oli said they did this video themselves. Impressive!

I see much success for this trio!
